Tip 7: Choose the right motor and battery
The action radius of an electric tricycle depends on the level of pedal support (cycling in stand 1, 2, or 3), wind, speed, tire pressure, weight of cycler, surface ( road or sand), age of the battery.
At Van Raam we have two types of motors, the Silent and the Silent HT. With this powerful engine, you can cycle forwards and backwards. The advisors of Van Raam can explain everything about the special development for Van Raam motors. On the bicycles, you can assemble a 11.2 ah battery or a 24.8 ah battery. You can also choose for a second battery pack when you want to increase the action radius. Read more about the motor and battery on de page about electric pedal support.
Tip 8: Inform to funding options
Many families have obtained funding to purchase a Van Raam bike as therapeutic equipment for children with physical and/or cognitive disabilities such as autism, Down Syndrome, sight impairment, cerebral palsy, epilepsy and hypotonia. Luckily there are a lot of amazing organizations out there who can help funding for an adaptive bike,
for example: Make a Wish foundation and Children’s Charity fund. Read more about Funding in the UK at the website of our dealer Ashfield Special Needs LTD. Read more about funding options in the USA on the website of our dealer Bike-on.com.
Tip 9: Decide if you want to ensure the bike
You are not obligated to ensure the (electric) tricycle. It is advisable to ensure the bike for stealing. For the Easy Go scooter bike, you need to have an insurance.
